The Rift Café Wiki


Nathan (or Nate, as he likes to be called) has gone by several aliases during his time as a Brony, such as TheBronySpartanLazer, HaxNathan29, AkatsukiNate, and most recently, NateStoleYourWaifu. One day he decided to watch MLP just for the heck of it, and fell in love with the characters and the stories. Inspired by many Bronies including MLP-Silver-Quil, DrWolf001, Firebrand, and Lightning Bliss, Nate set out to make his own YouTube content.

Since second grade, Nathan has been using an OC version of himself known as "Super Nathan", who has gone through many changes, such as having a pony form named "Thunda Lovestruck", though that name and incarnation of the character was dropped when Nate temporarily lost interest in the show due to the release of Dragonball Super causing a much stronger interest in Dragonball. Nate's OC, currently named "Nate Gaffnatron", a Reincarnated Devil (See Highschool DxD) , went on many different adventures and met many different characters depending on what Nate was interested at the time, such as fighting and killing Yellow Diamond, The Dazzlings, Emperor Vitiate, and many more. Nate is also notorious for having an unreasonable amount of waifus, even if other people share the same waifu, jokingly claiming he "stole your waifu", such as when he stole Hekapoo from his friend back in high school.

Around the end of 2019, Nate would later join the "Duelists of The Cyber Realm" Discord server, befriending many of its owners and creators such as Digigex90 and ROKBOT3000 (also known as WildCard). Nate would then ask if he were to make a series, if it could be a spinoff of Duelists of The Cyber Realm, to which Digigex90 agreed. Nate had made a lot of videos before hand, but none had really stuck out as anything impressive due to both a lack of time and a good editing software. However, during Spring 2020, he uploaded his first Yu-Gi-OH! dueling video, test running the KineMaster Video Editing App, and, with its relative success, Nate's Bizarre Dueling was born. For the remainder of the year, due to both school and Cadets, Nate was only able to make two more Dueling videos, "Duel of The Roommates", and "Spoil of the Speed", where he outright buried the mother of Diamond Tiara, Spoiled Rich, in a Speed Duel. As of this moment, a third episode is in development, though its release and status is unknown, as Nate has had to prepare for college and/or the Navy, whichever he gets into first.

Nate is a huge fan of anime such as The Dragonball Franchise, Naruto, Dragonmaid, Monster Musume, One Punch Man, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, and his absolute favourite who he consideres to be the "Citzen Kane" of Harem Ecchi Anime, Highschool DxD.

Nate played Compettitive Yugioh from August of 2017 to August of 2021, Quitting due to the mass staleness of the game, lackluster products, the apathy of Konami, and the Secondary Market actively gatekeeping most of the playerbase.

As of right now, he plays Commander EDH casually in Magic The Gathering.

OC Backstory[]

Nathan Gaffnatronus (Or Nate Gaffnatron) is a Reincarnated Devil Earth Pony who was born outside the main city of Canterlot, and grew up there most of his life. While growing up, he was introduced to the Duel Monsters Trading Card Game, where he would gain a lot of respect for and fanboy over the monster known as Exodius The Forbidden One, the extension of Exodia The Forbidden One used by Adrian Gecko in the Yu-Gi-Oh GX Anime. He would later go on to meet his friend and future roommate Terence, a gigantic bird who came from a clan of Elemental Birbs who were protecting their eggs from Pigs, of whom Nate would help defeat alongside Terence. The two would form a friendship and Terence would become a highly skilled compettitive player, whereas Nate would only go as far as topping a few local tournaments.

In the series, He dueled against Terence defeating the bird's Crystal Beast deck, and would later fight and bury Spoiled Rich in the first ever recorded Brony Speed Dueling video.

Nate is in possession Duel Spirit known as Exodius The Ultimate Forbidden Lord, a Monster who could summon the Forbidden One should all 5 Pieces of Exodia hit the Graveyard, and gained more power depending on the number of Normal Monsters in the Graveyard. On top of this, Nate has access to a portion of Exodia's power, much like Adrian Gecko did in Yu-Gi-Oh GX season 3, though instead of sacrificing the one he loved most, he offered up his Soul to where if Nate ever lost a Shadow Duel; Nate's soul would be given to Exodia and consumed; never allowing him to return to the mortal realm suffering in the depths of Tartarus for eternity. It is unknown how he acquired Exodius/Exodia's power, but it may have something to do with the fact Nate is a Reincarnated Devil.


  • Nate joined the fandom at around the end of 2013, when he was 11.
